Search John Milling Cemetery:

Two graves here from the REVOLUTIONARY WAR (John Milling) and the CIVIL WAR (John R Milling).

Cemetery is located on large, privately owned acreage; gated and locked. Ingress permission is generally not available.

Near Jackson Creek, 0.9 mile west of Jackson Creek Road.

Fifteen graves found: mostly Milling, one Lemmon infant, two Moore, one footstone only. Graves include:
one Revolutionary War grave (John Milling);
one Confederate grave (John R Milling).

Oldest grave found: John Milling, died 5/5/1788.

No depressions noted; no fieldstones found. Cemetery is fairly small (about 75' x 75') so there are probably no other graves unmarked. Cemetery is wholly contained within stacked granite blocks some of which have fallen down on three sides. There remains still an attractive wrought iron walk-thru gate.

Cemetery is fairly low down off a hillside and generally in the flood plain of the nearby creek; there was standing water within the cemetery on the lowest side. Overall condition of the cemetery was not good, probably heavily influenced by its susceptibility to periodic flooding.

Zoom in on the 1st & 3rd photos here - you can see the standing water in the far corner of the cemetery, and also the creek water through the woods in the distance. Jackson Creek was higher than normal, but not at flood stage.

No unmarked graves, depressions, or fieldstones noted outside of the cemetery walls.
